Details

Recorder (Recorder screen)

Device ID

Meters Tag 2 or Serial #

Although it can be set in the master file in three different ways, the recommended method of
generating a Recorder device ID is as an alphanumeric string of variable length (0) based on
the TAG2 value from the Factory module of the meter. If this field is blank, the TAG2 value
defaults to the serial number of the meter.
The standard format of the serial number is xx-xxxxxxxx-xx. Hyphens must be included.
The TIM_ION is also backward compatible with the legacy method of using the ION meter
communication port Unit ID.
As a 4 digit hexadecimal equivalent of the decimal unit ID configured into your ION meter for
the appropriate communication port.
As a 5-digit decimal number, based on the decimal unit ID configured into your ION meter for
the appropriate communication port.
Example: If the unit ID of COM port 1 of your meter is 1234, the 5-digit numeric device ID is 01234 (add a
leading zero to the 4-digit unit ID). The 4 digit hexadecimal equivalent device ID is 04D2.

Refer to Appendix 4: Master file Settings for TCP/IP on page 27 for Ethernet Device ID values.

Call/Ret
mode

AN (Answer mode)

Must be set to AN (Answer mode); ION meters do not initiate calls in MV-90.

Interval per
hour

Minimum 1,
maximum 60

How many times per hour the meter logs data. The minimum is 1 and the maximum is 60.

Active
channels

Minimum 1,
maximum 16

Should exactly match the number of data recorder sources (MV-90 channels) set up in the meter
(between 1 and 16).

More (Recorder Screen)

TIM Number

See Details

The number mapped to your TIM_ION module.

Device
follows DST

No

Must be set to No. ION meters can follow DST, but the data and event timestamps are returned
to MV-90 in GMT, and MV-90 applies the appropriate time zone and DST offsets according to
the master file entries.

Time Zone
Adjust

See Details

Time difference, in minutes, between local meter time and local MV-90 time. For example, if the
MV-90 machine is in Texas, and the meter is in California, Time Zone Adjust = 120.

Auto Timeset

Yes

Must be set to Yes. The TIM_ION module can set the time in ION devices, and Auto Timeset
ensures that this does not cause the meter to cross an interval boundary. Refer to Generating a
MASTER.DAT file on page 5 for details on how to select this option.

For P-File data, you must create a TIM config file. See Appendix 1: Config Files for more details.

See Details

It is possible to connect to ION meters so that you can read more than one meter in a single
phone call. To read daisy-chained meters, the master/slave daisy-chain flag is set to MASTER for
the first meter and SLAVE for the rest. The device ID of the master is entered into every MASTER
ID field in the chain. The SLAVE ID is the next meter to interrogate on the same call. The SLAVE
ID of the last meter on the daisy chain is always blank.

Encoder type

Refer to Details

If the channel is used for interval data, and validation is to be performed by MV-90 on this channel, the
Encoder Type has to be set as per the table in Appendix 2.
If the channel is used for a non-cumulative value such as Volts, Amps, kW, kVAR, kVA, and no register
read is required, then the Encoder type must be NO.
If the channel is used for a cumulative value (interval values computed as deltas) such as V2h, I2h, kWh,
kVARh, set the Encoder type to CV.
If the channel is accepting the cumulative output of a digital pulse, set the Encoder type to CV.

If cumulative values are to be read by MV-90 as is, set the Encoder Type to NO.

Pulse
Multiplier

Refer to Details

In order that recorder data successfully validates against meter data this field would normally
have the same value as the Meter Multiplier. Refer to subsequent Note.

NOTE
Meter multiplier and pulse multiplier values are configured for MV-90 Standard Checking based on
whether the recorder (meter) is recording primary or secondary data, and the data format (E-File or PFile).
For E-File data format, the meter multiplier and the pulse multiplier must match.
For P-File data, the meter multiplier references the scaling applied to the recorder (meter), and the pulse
multiplier references the pulse weight (amount of energy per pulse) of the channels Integrator module.

Config file for MVLT, MVP

RECBUF=n:
(supported after 11/
01/99)

Set to 15 to minimize connection time with the meter. Set to 1 for remote
sites with high communication error rates. This parameter defines an
integer number between 1 and 15 that represents the number of records
requested in each read command.

EVENT_CUTOFF=n
: (supported after
11/01/99)

Defaults to 0 (zero) to read all events. Set above 255 if no events are to be
logged. This parameter defines which meter events will be imported in
MV-90. Only meter events with a priority equal to or greater than
EVENT_CUTOFF are recorded in MV-90s event log.

TO=n: (supported
after 2/28/00)

1200 (12 seconds) is an adequate value. Allowed values are 100 12000. This parameter defines the number of hundredths of seconds to
wait for the meter to return the first character of its response.

ITO=n: (supported
after 2/28/00)

1000 (10 seconds) is an adequate value. This parameter defines the intercharacter timeout. It is the number of hundredths of seconds to wait for
each byte of data from the meter after the previous byte has been
received.

* R is no longer required (11/09/99). The recorder depth is read from the meter, but this value may be
included to override the meter settings. This is useful when you do not want to read all of the sources
(MV-90 channels) of Data Recorder 1.

Description

Compares the difference as a percentage of the meter multiplier. This is


intended to allow comparison of the difference between the sum of the
intervals and the difference of the last and current meter reads as a
percentage of a dial rotation.

Percentage comparison of the difference of the meter reads with the total
meter energy reading. As the reading goes up, a set percentage of the
reading can be error.

Difference between the interval sum and the meter reads is expressed as a
percentage of an average of the past 30 days of data. This allows the
error to be larger when the readings are large and smaller when the
readings are small.

Appendix 5: Using MVP with TIM_ION


ThefollowingparametersareallowedwhenusingMVPwithTIM_ION:
Parameter

Description

MVP.EXE

Should be dated after 7/01/00*

TIM_ION.EXE

Should be dated after 7/01/00. TIM_ION can only be run on MVP with
routs or by using a configuration file. The configuration file must be stored
in the MVP directory on the handheld PC.

Message Level

Should be set to 5.

* Both the MVP.EXE & TIM_ION.EXE should be dated after 7/01/00. Because of the size of TIM_ION.EXE,
it is recommended that the number of TIMs loaded on the handheld be kept to a minimum. Also, since
TIM_ION can generate large debug files, it is recommended that the message level be kept to a low
value. Message Level 5 generates a smaller debug file than message level 6, and overwrites the current
debug.rd/.wr file.

WithMVPandtheConfigfilemethod,themetermustbereadusingapassword
read,andoneofthefollowingmustbeprovided:

Parameter

Description

Device ID

Must match exactly the DEVID=line in the configuration file, and must
match the unique device ID in the MV-90 master file. Device ID may be
filled in at the MVP ID prompt - this ID must match whatever is being used
in the MV-90 master file as a device ID.

UNIT ID

Must match a UNIT=line in the .CFG file. The TIM reads the TAG2 and
Serial number fields from the meter to determine the proper device ID. The
Unit ID is entered on the MVP screen field for Password2. This must match
what MV-90 uses in the password2 field.

NOTE
ION meters allow separate Unit IDs for each communications port on the meter. Each port used to collect
data on a meter must use the same Unit ID to be recognized as the same device by MV-90. This must
uniquely identify the meter in the MV-90 database.
